Gnarly riffage from the Great Plains of Montana.


Static Abyss’ debut studio album, ‘Labyrinth of Veins’, presents an unnerving, multi-layered eerie concoction of dirty doom and death, including themes exploring the echoes of insanity manifested through human existence.

GOAT VOMIT NOISE ~ Nihilist Front (EP) 2022

 Obnoxious black death from Italy. There's loads of nasties to contend with in this vicious, eardrum destroying EP.  First off are the hypersonic death riffs that flay you alive, interspersed with surprise switches to an ugly HM-2 onslaught encapsulated in crust that leaves you recoiling from the horror of it all.

DOOMSHINE ~ The End Is Worth Waiting For ( 2015)

Doomshine is a Germanic band that trudges a weary route along the Candlemass path, slightly less polished with a more 'metallic' feel and that is not a criticism at all. The songs are epic, slow as you would expect but with the (very) occasional burst of speed. Guitar solo's weep in anguish at the heaviness of it all then sigh in contentment when salved by the glorious melodies that illuminate this fantastic album.

RAT TAMANGO ~ Jelly Tube (2022)

 Rat Tamango is an Australian blues band that rocks like a mountain range and rolls like boulders in a landslide. They play a raw style of mood shifting blues rock, acidic, raw and snarling one moment, moody and sullen the next all with tons of strutting attitude. Watch out for the fuzz, it bites without warning when you least expect it. 

There is a recent full length 'As I Live and Breathe' that hasn't found it's way onto Bandcamp yet.
